NASA has plans to set up an outpost on the moon and one of the issues they are facing is how to dig dirt on the moon. Unlike dirt found here on Earth, moon dirt is razor sharp and very fine so researchers must figure out a way to design a machine that can dig moon dirt without destroying the machine. This NASA video takes you behind the scenes at the NASA lunar backhoe competition where researchers compete to find out who has made the most efficient machine.

This NASA video segment gives an inside look at another useful NASA technology, Doppler radar. Between mid-1960 and mid-1980 airplane fatalities were often due to the effects of hazardous wind shears during a plane's landing and take off. These winds, also known as microbursts, occur when a column of sinking air rapidly cools, creating intense downbursts of powerful winds. This video segment describes how NASA's Wind Shear Program and the FAA worked together to invent a sensor to warn pilots...
